THE CHOSEN Cast, Crew Reveal Favorite Moments From Next Season
By Movieguide® Contributor
The cast and crew of THE CHOSEN are celebrating the end of production on Season 4 with a special behind-the-scenes video.
“It’s almost impossible to narrow down one or two moments,” star Jonathan Roumie said when asked what he’s most looking forward to fans seeing. “How do I pick? It’s like choosing between your children.”
Showrunner Dallas Jenkins didn’t seem to have that problem.
“Episode seven,” he said emphatically when asked the same question.
Austin Reed Alleman, who plays Nathaniel, shared that his favorite part of the upcoming season is the music.
“I’m most excited for the fans to see the music,” he said. “As a musician myself…that was a wonderful experience, and getting to work with first-century instruments, and the learning curve from guitar to a three-stringed instrument…it was super fun and unlike anything I’ve gotten to do.”
The cast and crew of THE CHOSEN have let a few more details about Season 4 slip, including some of the upcoming episodes’ themes.
“In this season, Jesus is weary and heavy-laden,” Jenkins shared. “I actually think that this is going to be the most impactful season we’ve ever done, emotionally and spiritually.”
THE CHOSEN’s next season doesn’t have an official release date yet, but Jenkins revealed that it is “actually coming in theaters.”
Movieguide® previously reported on THE CHOSEN’s production, which was able to resume during the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes after receiving a waiver:
Like every other scripted production, THE CHOSEN was forced to stop filming when the actors’ strike began on July 14. However, because the production is fully independent, it quickly received an exemption and became the first TV show able to continue production.
“Everyone’s thrilled to be at work … everyone was eager to finish,” creator and director, Dallas Jenkins told Religion News Service. “We were already done filming Episodes 1-4, so these last two weeks allow[ed] us to complete Episodes 5-8.”
“Some of the most impactful moments come in what we’re now filming, so I’m glad we didn’t have to delay it!” he added.
